Building a Homes for Our Troops Home for Marco Solt

Army SPC Marco Solt is a Brooklyn Center native whose vehicle encountered an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) on his first deployment in Afghanistan. Marco lost both of his legs in the explosion and now uses prosthetics and his wheelchair to get around.
The BATC Foundation is proud to be partnering with Homes for Our Troops to bring Marco and his wife Gena a brand new, specially adapted home. Like every home built with the national organization, Marco’s home will be equipped with over 40 major special adaptations including widened doorways, lowered countertops, roll-under cook tops and sinks designed to ensure full wheelchair accessibility. The Foundation’s Build Partner for this project is Accent Homes, based in Ham Lake, MN. Accent Homes will serve as construction manager, and hopes to hand the keys over to Marco and his family early this Fall.
